Building support for more open trade : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations ( Book )

With the current slowdown in the world economy, the expansion of free trade is critically important to economic growth in the United States and abroad--and the United States must move forward on expanding trade now. That is the conclusion of this independent Task Force, which specifically recommends that Congress give Trade Promotion Authority, formerly known as "fast-track," to the president. Created to help break America's political deadlock on trade, and accepting that trade expansion contributes "to economic growth by promoting investment, encouraging competition and technological innovation, and reducing inflation," the Task Force reached two broad conclusions: trade expansion, when combined with complementary domestic policies, can help address the problems cited by labor, environmentalists, and others concerned with social issues; and the United States must move ahead on Trade Promotion Authority. The report outlines recommendations for building a stronger American political consensus on trade expansion. Among its other recommendations: the president should ask Congress for separate votes on individual trade agreements and programs, thus employing a "building block" strategy that will help build a durable base of confidence in, and political support for, trade expansion; the administration should more closely involve Congress throughout the trade-negotiating process, which includes developing broader and deeper contacts with congressional trade committees; Congress and the administration should agree to procedural reforms whereby trade agreements that affect U.S. domestic regulations would be subject to ordinary public notice, comment, and a review process. Failure to reach consensus, the Task Force Report argues, raises the danger of "a broader erosion of support for policies that are fundamental to economic success and rising standards of living in all countries."

Robert Rubin was sworn in as the seventieth U.S. Secretary of the Treasury in January 1995 in a brisk ceremony attended only by his wife and a few colleagues. As soon as the ceremony was over, he began an emergency meeting with President Bill Clinton on the financial crisis in Mexico. This was not only a harbinger of things to come during what would prove to be a rocky period in the global economy; it also captured the essence of Rubin himself--short on formality, quick to get into the nitty-gritty. From his early years in the storied arbitrage department at Goldman Sachs to his current position as chairman of the executive committee of Citigroup, Robert Rubin has been a major figure at the center of the American financial system. He was a key player in the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. With In an Uncertain World, Rubin offers a shrewd, keen analysis of some of the most important events in recent American history and presents a clear, consistent approach to thinking about markets and dealing with the new risks of the global economy. Rubin's fundamental philosophy is that nothing is provably certain. Probabilistic thinking has guided his career in both business and government. We see that discipline at work in meetings with President Clinton and Hillary Clinton, Chinese premier Zhu Rongji, Alan Greenspan, Lawrence Summers, Newt Gingrich, Sanford Weill, and the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan. We see Rubin apply it time and again while facing financial crises in Asia, Russia, and Brazil; the federal government shutdown; the rise and fall of the stock market; the challenges of the post-September 11 world; the ongoing struggle over fiscal policy; and many other momentous economic and political events. With a compelling and candid voice and a sharp eye for detail, Rubin portrays the daily life of the White House-confronting matters both mighty and mundane--as astutely as he examines the challenges that lie ahead for the nation. Part political memoir, part prescriptive economic analysis, and part personal look at business problems, In an Uncertain World is a deep examination of Washington and Wall Street by a figure who for three decades has been at the center of both worlds.

The new rules of the game the battle for the world economy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third episode in a 3 part series exploring the changing economic world in the 20th century: the clash between governments and the marketplace, the debate over the impact of globalization, and the forces shaping future economies. This episode tracks the global economy through the 1990s to the present. The focus is on American policy as both political parties embrace unfettered globalization over the objections of organized labor. Internet-linked financial markets, unrestricted capital flows and floating currencies drive levels of speculative investments while entrepreneurs create multinational corporations. As popular unease grows that the system is just too complex to be controled new opposition to globalization forms as the gap widens further between rich and poor

The Carter Center's Development Cooperation Forum was held Feb. 21-22, 2002, to take stock of the reforms of global development cooperation instituted over the last decade, focusing on poverty reduction. Following opening remarks by President Carter, Robert Rubin delivered a speech that highlighted the linkage between global human security and U.S. national security and called on the private sector and civil society to lead an urgent campaign of public education to generate greater public support for global development cooperation, particularly in the U.S. An important outcome of the Forum was President Carter's decision to attend the International Conference on Financing for Development in Monterrey, Mexico, in March 2002, to add his voice to those calling for greater generosity from donor countries to achieve the Millennium Development Goals
The crisis ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
August 31, 1998 was dubbed "Black Monday." On that day the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 512 points, wiping out a year's worth of gains. World markets panicked. Fear spread that the global economy was facing meltdown. Unraveling what happened that summer of 1998, "The Crash" examines the underlying dynamics of a global economy that has created this new era of risk and instability. Critics say the "Washington consensus"--Advocating the free movement of goods and capital for developing countries so they can become successful market economies--fostered vulnerabilities in emerging markets which were an underlying cause of the crisis. So what began as a localized currency and financial crisis in Thailand, roared through the world's economy in 1998, bringing depression to Indonesia, economic meltdown to Russia, and deep fears about what would happen next in Latin America

From recession to recovery to renewal an economic strategy to achieve broadly shared growth ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[T]he recession that began in 2007 has been one of the worst periods for American families since the Great Depression. Americans are living with the uniquely acute fears that are produced by economic insecurity. In this weak economic environment, much of government policy should be focused on the short and intermediate terms. In this paper, The Hamilton Project argues that even in these difficult times it is vital that we begin to confront the challenges that pose a greater risk to our long-run prosperity than the Great Recession. Our perspective is that America's future growth requires reprioritizing expenditures toward increasing workforce productivity, innovation and infrastructure, savings, and government effectiveness. However, the ability to make these investments is increasingly compromised by our difficult fiscal position. As part of this strategy to shift focus to long run prosperity, the United States should begin to confront the deficit as soon as the economic recovery has gained sufficient momentum. -- Abstract. (p.2)
Path to prosperity an economic strategy to achieve more broadly shared growth ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Today, too many Americans are not fully sharing in our nation's prosperity. Real median wages have stagnated, income inequality has increased, and changes in the economy that have brought benefits have also brought new risks and insecurities. In response to these challenges, our nation needs to act now on three fronts. First, our national must make the right long-term investments to promote economic growth that is both strong and sustainable. Second, it is necessary to put in place economic policies that will better achieve broad-based participation in that growth. Third, for growth to be sustainable, it is necessary to restore sound fiscal policy, moving on a multiyear path to a sustainable fiscal position. This papers elaborates on the economic challenges and the recommended policy responses. It considers the commonly held view that promoting economic growth, broad-based participation in growth, and economic security may be contradictory policy objectives, but finds instead that these objectives are mutually reinforcing. It argues that while free markets are the cornerstone of economic growth, there is a necessary role for robust government action to support and supplement market forces and to help share the gains of growth more broadly. abstract (p.2)
